BPA has secured planning permission for the stationing of a “Mezzanine Pod” as an ancillary outbuilding in Cheltenham.
This application involved the demolition of the existing garage to allow for the stationing of a Mezzanine Pod as an ancillary outbuilding. The purpose of this development was to create a safe independent space for a teenager with ADHD, as a place they can escape to and call their own.
Due to the quirky design of the pod, we undertook pre-application discussions with Cheltenham Borough Council which concluded positively and allowed for the progression to a householder application. The Mezzanine Pod itself is designed by a local company called My Shire Houses, which build a range of bespoke structures, priding themselves on using all-natural materials and keeping hand craftsmanship alive. More details of their work and other pods available can be found at https://www.myshirehouses.co.uk/
Through our strong planning submission and positive engagement with the case officer, the application was approved under delegated authority.
BPA has secured full planning permission for 4no. high-quality detached dwellings in Stow-on-the-Wold.
Due to the sensitive nature of the site (Cotswolds AONB and in close proximity to designated heritage assets) coupled with the site’s complex and rather colourful planning history, we undertook pre-application discussions with the local authority. During which, we successfully established the principle of residential development on the whole of the site area, and sought clarity from the council regarding the issues that needed to be addressed to secure a positive determination. The result is a cleverly designed scheme, incorporating features typical of the Cotswold vernacular with a contemporary twist.

Overwhelming support at Tewkesbury Borough Council Planning Committee meeting this morning for an application to convert a disused former stables building into two holiday let units. Brodie Planning are pleased with the success of this submission due to the support this type of development offers the rural economy and moreover, securing an appropriate use for a disused historic building thereby prolonging its life. The preparation of the application required careful consideration on a number of complex matters including the non-designated heritage asset status of the building and its siting within a rich historic context (both natural and built); the presence of bats in the building; along with more typical requirements for surface water and foul drainage, and highway/sustainable transport matters.
